IT'S NOT ABOUT THE REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE

Discover Protect Our Winters' new mission to mobilize the outdoor industry
on climate.
For the past six months, the outdoor industry's leader in environmental protection has been involved in a massive undertaking. "We've been doing qualitative
and quantitative research projects to understand people's love of outdoors
and how it pertains to potential they have to make an impact on climate," says
Samantha Kilgore, Protect Our Winters' communications manager. "And what
we've found is that you can't just hit people over the head with climate issues-
it feels too political and polarizing."
Instead, the organization is trying to show individuals that the very things
that define them-being a skier or being a mountain biker-are what's at stake,
rather than just skiing or biking. The reason? To fire them up to join POW's advocacy in ways that will be more straightforward and accessible. Learn about
these efforts-including a new carbon footprint tool with a mission larger than
merely calculating a carbon footprint-at POW's luncheon, "Mobilizing the Outdoor Community on Meaningful Climate Action." The POW lunch will be held
on Jan. 31 from 12 to 1 p.m. in MR405. -T.R.

Fight Over Flight: How These Outdoor Brands Use Amazon to Thrive
2:30-3:30 p.m., MR405
With more than 50% of product
searches starting on Amazon, brands

starts with having the right foundation and strategy. Come hear from

presentation brings together a range
of different case studies depicting
how brands have effectively delivered real impact through innovative
approaches in material choice, manufacturing process, and consumer
engagement. Parallels will be made

potential opportunities-providing

and brands. Speaker: Dr. Gayatri

Natural Materials: Sourcing and
Designing to Grow Sustainability
and Drive Sales
3:30-4:30 p.m., Trend + Design Center
(5019-LL)
The use of natural materials in outdoor gear is on the rise and for good
reason. Not only are materials such
as down, cotton, wool, and bamboo
renewable, biodegradable, and (in
many cases) recyclable, they also
have unique performance attributes
not easily replicated with synthetics.
Today's end users are more savvy
about where they spend their money
and how it impacts the environment.
Join us and learn how incorporating more natural materials into your
product selection can support a sustainable future while increasing sales.
